The U.S. European Command (EUCOM) has implemented travel restrictions to Brussels, Belgium. Unofficial travel to Brussels — leave, liberty and special pass — is prohibited until further notice. Those on official travel or emergency leave to Brussels will also require the approval of the first general or flag officer or senior executive service equivalent in the traveler's or sponsor's chain of command. This EUCOM policy applies to military personnel, Defense Department civilian employees, contractors and command-sponsored dependents and family members. These restrictions do not apply to military personnel assigned to diplomatic posts in Belgium. EUCOM continues to seek 100 percent accountability from all subordinate commands and units.
